Shrewsbury, what makes it special?
2nd August, 2023
Well, apart from the fabulous flower and botanical shop at the top of The Wyle Cop?!
Is it’s ‘Darwin’ history, beautiful buildings and horseshoe river winding around the town? It’s endless festivals, arts trail, theatre, the longest street of uninterrupted independent retailers (one of which I am) or its award-winning market hall?
Maybe it’s the abundance of privately run restaurants and coffee shops, the choice of cuisine they offer in quirky buildings on every street?
Could it be the surrounding countryside, the walks, country villages, and hills to view the county and beyond?
It’s all those things, but for me, it’s the people that make Shrewsbury special, the jewel of Shropshire.
The people who visit for days out, for those that choose to enjoy a staycation here, and the locals who support their town so diligently. Shrewsbury supports its local businesses over the ‘big boys’, and for that I have endless gratitude, it’s not an easy time to be a business owner and every sale is greatly appreciated.
We all pour our heart and soul into our businesses, working day in and day out to keep this town buoyant and vibrant, to not let it fail where others have. So, if you are looking to spend a day mooching around a town, spend a little money and support a town working hard please come and visit us, you won’t be disappointed and, I promise you, we will be delighted to see you!
